What Is The Best Non Toxic Toothpaste Available?
Every day, at least twice a day, you brush your teeth for your entire life! Not much thought goes into this routine, but does any thought go into your toothpaste? It should.
A clean mouth is imperative to good oral hygiene. But what are you putting in your mouth every day? Is what you are putting on your toothbrush every morning helping or harming you? Most commercially available toothpastes are LOADED with toxic chemicals and abrasives. Go grab your favorite tube out of the bathroom and take a look at the top FIVE worst ingredients. Does your brand contain any of these?
You’ve heard it since you were a kid. FLUORIDE! This has been used in toothpastes to supposedly strengthen enamel. Fluoride is considered toxic when ingested in high levels and is a controversial additive in water. The addition of Fluoride to toothpaste prompted manufacturers in the U.S. to have warning labels required by the FDA stating: “WARNING: Keep out of reach of children under 6 years of age. If you accidentally swallow more than used for brushing, seek professional help or contact a poison control center immediately.” You use this product EVERY DAY. You will always ingest some. What do you think that does to you over time?
One effect it has it deposits on the pineal gland, responsible for melatonin production.

I’m sure you have heard of it. The sweetening agent in Sweet N ‘Low is saccharin, which has been linked to bladder cancer, brain tumors and lymphoma. In addition to cancer, saccharin has also been tied to a variety of allergic reactions including headaches, breathing issues, skin rashes and diarrhea.
A 2008 study from Appetite found “a significant increase of plasma insulin concentration was apparent after stimulation with saccharin.” And they didn’t even ingest the saccharin! They just rinsed their mouth out with it.
Increased insulin levels is a risk factor for both obesity and diabetes. Not the best way to start your morning by increasing your insulin levels.
3.) SODIUM LAUREL SULFATE (SLS)
In the cleaning industry, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is used to clean garage floors. SLS is a drying agent which has a foaming effect that can be found in some toothpaste. It is known to cause microscopic tears in mouths that can lead to canker sores. Do you want to clean your teeth with the same stuff they clean garage floors with? I don’t think so.
Although extracted from red seaweeds (seaweed is healthy right?) dozens of scientific, peer-reviewed studies used food-grade carrageenan and found exposure to carrageenan causes gastrointestinal inflammation, ulcerations, lesions and even colon cancer in laboratory animals. Also, the American Diabetes Association links the consumption to insulin resistance and glucose intolerance in mice. Research shows that exposure to carrageenan causes inflammation and that when we consume it, we can ingest enough to cause inflammation in our bodies. All forms of carrageenan are capable of causing inflammation. This is bad news. We know that chronic inflammation is a root cause of many serious diseases including heart disease, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, and cancer.
5.) PROPYLENE GLYCOL
Sound familiar? Recognize this in anti-freeze? Yes, this is a solvent that is the active component in some anti-freezes. It’s a petroleum based chemical that is used to soften cosmetic products and is used in a multitude of personal care products. In large quantities, studies have shown that it can cause damage to the central nervous system, liver and heart. You will hear the argument that this is fine in small doses. Maybe? You brush your teeth several times a day for 70+ (hopefully) years, how much do you think you ingest doing that?
So you grabbed your toothpaste from the bathroom and found one or all of these ingredients in it. What do you do now? What product do you pick for you, and your family, to use EVERY DAY, multiple times a day, that you can feel good about using?
There Are Alternatives
Is there a Non Toxic Toothpaste available and what is in it?
Stabilized Chlorine Dioxide
One of the key ingredients in SISEL’s Toothpaste is Stabilized Chlorine Dioxide. This ingredient not only eliminates mouth odor but is also aggressive towards troublesome microbes. While tough on germs, Stabilized Chlorine Dioxide is gentle on delicate mouth tissue making it a perfect component in SISEL Toothpaste.
Another major constituent in SISEL Toothpaste is Hydrated Silica. This important ingredient helps keep teeth white by mechanically removing stain films from our teeth. A study on over 40 different toothpastes found that those containing hydrated silica had the highest cleaning efficacy as compared to those without. SISEL Toothpaste has the power to fight unwanted stains and odors with potent cleaning agents.
SISEL Toothpaste cleaning and protective support is enhanced by xylitol, a natural sweetener that will not feed the bacteria that cause tooth decay. It also contains the essential oil of peppermint, which lends a fresh, minty flavor. This is the harsh, chemical flavor you taste in commercial toothpaste, your mouth is left feeling clean and refreshed.
Your smile is the first thing people notice, you want to use a product that not only protects your smile, but won’t harm you. Sure, in very small doses, some of the ingredients above won’t “kill” you, but you brush your teeth every single day, don’t you want to use a Non Toxic Toothpaste that will both protect your smile and not harm you or your family?
